So Mk1A is not a major upgrade? JF17 block 3 also required prototypes for testing and validation of new AESA, FCS and related avionics the entire process took about 1 year. How many MK1A have been produced so far? Running multiple projects in parallel is not a concern for IAF? Do they have sufficient manufacturing capabilities to meet project deadlines?

You need a prototype if there is an any design mods, new composite materials used etc. If the design is the same but changes in internal components, LRUs it doesn't need a prototype.
However first Mk1A is expected to fly in June 2022 according to HaL

Tejas Mk1 FOC fighters from No.18 'Flying Bullets' squadron at Singapore Air Show 2022

The 3 Tejas fighters flew nonstop from Sulur AFS in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu state to Singapore, a distance over 3000 kms, without any tanker support. I think that can lay to rest any speculations about the ferry range of the Tejas. It is class leading.

The range will always get updated from time to time. Tejas was initially rated for only 3.25 tonnes payload, then 3.5, now 4T with significant improvement in flight profile. As it gets exploit more, more info will tumble out. The ferry range is 3200km officially while it has travelled 3150km nearly. Which means it should have at least 10% of fuel left for safety reasons. Which itself makes the ferry range around 3400km.

while the roll seems to be good but it seems to be bleeding a lot of energy in turns


























































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































Tejas has mid air refueling, So IAF would have refuelled it mid air before leaving Indian borders. Sojust wait for official statement. But I'm:guessing, As they havent braged about it, Which they Should have ; Tejas range is not drastically improved from official. Brochures.
